Greenpeace protesters forcibly evicted from Brdy military grounds

Military police on Monday started forcibly evicting Greenpeace activists from their camp in the Brdy military area, where they have spent the past six weeks protesting against the siting of a US missile defense radar on Czech soil. Around twenty Greenpeace activists set up camp in the grass clearing chosen by officials from the U.S. Missile Defence Agency for the radar facility and have refused to budge in spite of repeated warnings that they were trespassing on military grounds. After cutting them off from visitors and waiting in vain for hunger and thirst to drive them away the military police launched a forcible eviction on Monday. According to the CTK news agency the activists were taken away for questioning.
